A dreamlike depiction of the daily lives of Mayans living on a coffee plantation at the base of an active volcano. A fusion of fact and fable, this film is an immersive journey into its characters' customs and beliefs, chronicling with unblinking realism disappearing traditions and a disappearing people.

This is a wonderful film depicting the daily life and culture of a Mayan family in Guatamala. The main actor is wonderful in the portrayal of how she loses her agency and the barriers faced by her and her family.

Gripping story of the life of a Guatemalan family speaking only a mayan language behind the volcano (ixcanul). This will be used against them without their knowledge. The juxtaposition of traditional and the modern life are well presented.
The added part of how the movie was made is worth watching.
